Following the previous two videoviews of Samsung's first Android smartphone, this videoview features the unboxing of the final Samsung Galaxy GT-I7500 which is available since this week from O2 Germany. While the previous two videoviews featured an early marketing sample with a pre-release firmware only, the Samsung Galaxy is now done and available; at least in Germany. The Galaxy isn't a "Google Experience Phone", like the T-Mobile G1 or the Vodafone HTC Magic, but you will not find any differences in terms of the Android user interface. The only real difference is, that neither Samsung nor O2 Germany will push firmware updates over the air but it has to be done by flashing the device through USB.

The Samsung Galaxy now features micro USB and a 3.5 mm stereo headset jack and therefore both, the charger/USB cable as well as the stereo headset can be replaced with non-Samsung accessories; a positive development. Furthermore the Samsung comes with a plastic pouch (not the best looking one but it protects the device) as well as a CD-ROM with drivers and other utilities.

The Samsung Galaxy GT-I7500 is now available from O2 Germany and it's neither SIM- nor Net-Locked and can be used with virtually any SIM card.

Cheers ~ Arne
